BlogSecurity, “a site dedicated to providing useful and critical security information for the blog community”, noted the following today:
BlogSecurity incrementally harvested the WordPress software version from 50 blogs; the results were frightening to say the least.
The following statement was taken from WordPress: None of these [WordPress Versions] are safe to use, except the latest in the 2.0 or 2.1 series, which are both actively maintained.
Pretty powerful stuff. Sounds to me like what is needed is a WordPress hosting service which will help you to keep your WordPress install up-to-date automatically… To ensure your WordPress security by making sure you are always running the latest version and are the 1 and not one of the 49.
Yes, that service will be coming soon… 😉
